ATC ANNOUNCES NEW LINE OF POWER AMPLIFIERS – THE P1 PRO AND P2 PRO

ATC_P1_PROLAS VEGAS, NEVADA – OCTOBER 2014: The TransAudio Group is proud to announce the release of two new MOSFET Class A/B design dual mono power amplifiers from ATC – the P1 Pro and P2 Pro. At 150W/ch into 8 Ohms and 300W/ch into 8 Ohms respectively, these fan-less, rack-mountable power amplifiers offer the perfect solution for any studio wishing to get the best out of their passive monitors, including the all-new ATC SCM20PSL Pro.

Both models feature a 19-inch rack-mount chassis with front panel mounted standby button and L/R clip indication. The amplifiers incorporate the same gain reduction and loudspeaker protection circuits that are used in the ATC active monitors. These circuits ensure that the amplifier will not clip, even when working at very high volumes, which protects the loudspeakers from damage and improves the subjective performance of the entire system. Importantly, neither amplifier uses a fan, so they can be placed anywhere, including the control room.

The P1 Pro and P2 Pro are of a ‘true’ dual mono design: the power supplies, signal, and return paths are totally separated from each other. This approach maximizes signal separation and minimizes crosstalk. Further, intermodulation between channels via the power supplies is reduced to an absolute minimum at all frequencies, and the power demand from one channel cannot affect the specified power available to the other channel.

Brad Lunde, president of the TransAudio Group, ATC’s U.S. distributor stated, “ATC is famous for building active studio reference monitors that give engineers a consistent, honest reflection of their work. Although ATC’s revolutionary drivers and chasses get most of the credit for the brand’s legendary transparency, ATC’s superbly-designed amplifiers deserve equal credit. Just as the new passive ATC SCM20PSL Pro gives engineers access to ATC’s loudspeaker without the amplification, the new ATC P1 Pro and P2 Pro give engineers access to ATC’s zero-compromise amplification without the loudspeaker itself. Any reference monitor will benefit from the clean power of an ATC P1 Pro or P2 Pro.”

ABOUT TRANSAUDIO GROUP TransAudio Group, founded by industry veteran Brad Lunde, has quickly become the premier U.S. importer/distributor and/or U.S. sales and marketing representative for high-end audio. Success hinges on TransAudio providing dealers and end users with a higher standard of product expertise and support far beyond the norm.

137th AES Convention to Feature “Chicks in the Mix” Panel

New York, NY, October 9, 2014 — The upcoming 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will feature a panel exploring the experience of female audio/recording professionals. “Chicks in the Mix” will take place Saturday, October 11, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in Room 403 AB. Historically the audio and recording industries have represented a male-dominated workplace – although the atmosphere has changed, there are still many challenges faced by female engineers, product designers, producers, mixers, managers, songwriters and artists that are not faced by their male counterparts. This panel brings together well-known female industry professionals to discuss their personal experience in these terms and how they do what they do.

Moderated by acclaimed producer and mixer Chris Lord-Alge, the discussion will feature the following panelists:

Marcella Araica, Recording & Mix engineer (Britney Spears, Madonna, Pink) – Miami, FL, USA; Los Angeles, CA, USA
Amy Burr, Larrabee Sound Studios, Studio Manager – North Hollywood, CA, USA
Emily Lazar, September Mourning (Lead Vocalist for the band) – New York, NY, USA
Lisa Loeb, GRAMMY®-nominated Singer/Songwriter – Los Angeles, CA USA
Brenda Russell, BMPR – Los Angeles, CA, USA

This dynamic panel, debuting at the AES137 Convention, is set to offer lively debate and discussion across all boundaries. No matter your gender, you will want to hear what these “Chicks in the Mix” have to say.

“I am very much looking forward to the ‘Chicks in the Mix’ panel at the AES convention,” stated Lord-Alge. “These five professionals each offer a distinct point of view and a different skill set, and their stories will help illuminate the experience of women in our industry.”

History Gets Its Due at the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention

New York, NY, October 9, 2014 — Music/audio production is by its nature an inherently historical and archival discipline, and the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place today through Sunday, October 12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California, sees the past come alive with the annual History Track.

AES Convention Historical Events Chair Mark Gander have assembled a winning collection of presentations. These include the perfect pairing of “The Evolution of Studio Acoustic Design” and “Audio Architects of the Nashville Sound,” which portrays highlights from the AES Nashville Lifetime Achievement Awards event.

Attendees will also enjoy listening to Michael Petersen of Shure, Inc., narrate the life and career of Benjamin Bauer, who developed the Uniphase network and the iconic Shure Model 55 Unidyne® Microphone, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. Bauer, an immigrant from Ukraine, developed the network at age 24, and it earned him the first of over 100 patents in audio technology. Included in the presentation are photos and details of the first Unidyne mic elements constructed by Bauer, uncovered December 2013 in the Shure Archives and not seen since the early 1940s.

In another fascinating panel, representatives from companies including Empirical Labs, Universal Audio and Great River Electronics – all engaged in manufacturing modern versions of classic audio products – will each profile one or more products, describing some of the methods that they use to duplicate the performance of the classic pieces. The participants will include representatives from manufacturers who develop hardware as well as software plug-ins. Each manufacturer will present products, methods and techniques, with discussion of measured and sonically judged faithfulness and/or improvements, followed by panel interaction and questions from the audience.

The full Historical Track program is here:

Thursday, October 9, 2:15 pm — 4:15 pm
Session H1 Evolution of Studio Acoustic Design

Thursday, October 9, 5:00 pm — 6:30 pm
Session H2 Audio Architects of the Nashville Sound: Highlights from the AES Nashville Lifetime Achievement Awards

Friday, October 10, 5:30 pm — 6:30 pm
Session H3 Benjamin Bauer and the Shure Unidyne Microphone: 75 Years of Audio Legend

Saturday, October 11, 12:15 pm — 1:15 pm
Session H4 History of Audio Measurement Technology

Saturday, October 11, 5:30 pm — 6:30 pm
Session H5 History of Line Arrays

Sunday, October 12, 2:30 pm — 4:30 pm
Session H6 Authentic Replication and Modeling of Vintage Audio Gear

“We put an enormous amount of care and thought into curating the Historical Track at the AES Conventions, because there is so much history in this industry, and so much more being made every day,” states Gander. “And it’s gratifying that they tend to be among the most well-attended sessions of the entire event. It’s clear that those involved in professional audio care deeply about its legacy.”

Further detailed information on the Historical Track at the AES137 Convention, as well as Registration, Hotel, and Technical Program formation are available on the AES137 webpage at http://www.aes.org/events/137/.

Kensington Tablet Cases Make Holiday Shopping a Snap

From rugged protection to extreme personalization, Kensington tablet cases have it all, and at budget-friendly prices

Kensington Twitter logo

Redwood Shores, CA, October 8, 2014 – Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple. computing accessories, offers a host of tablet cases that ease holiday shopping in a world that is always wired, from classroom, to dining room, to boardroom. Kensington tablet cases address a variety of needs, including rugged protection, power consumption and savings, personalization, ergonomics, and convenience. Ranging from $14.99 to $99.99, the cases deliver value at budget-friendly prices.

You’ve seen the designs before. And now they’re available in a cool, lightweight case for tablets. Kensington is drawing on its nostalgic past to create a case for today with the new Mead-inspired universal cases for 9-inch and 10-inch tablets. The soft, lightweight case offers secure protection for devices through the Silicone 4-Corner Base, which uses stay straps that come up and over the corners of the tablet. The inside cover has a soft interior lining that prevents the screen from getting scratched or damaged and a magnetic flap keeps the folio securely closed. The cover can be opened or folded into an upright or low-angle triangle stand so you can select the ideal position for watching videos, typing emails or web browsing.

The iPad Air has redefined the look and feel of what a thin, lightweight tablet should look and feel like. Now Kensington is doing the same for ultra-thin keyboard cases with the KeyFolio Thin X3 for iPad Air. The X3 features a breakthrough in innovation. PowerLift allows you to tap into the keyboard’s internal battery and charge your phone using its USB cable. A sleek and form-fitting, hard-shell exterior surrounds the tablet with protection while maintaining its thin profile. When the KeyFolio Thin X3 is opened, it reveals an integrated Bluetooth® keyboard that features six rows of high-performance scissor keys, including a row of dedicated shortcut keys, allowing you to be more productive using fewer keystrokes. The unique QuickFold design allows you to hide the keyboard beneath the iPad Air so you can quickly and easily transition from typing mode to viewing mode. The KeySense Power Channel automatically turns the keyboard on and off when it’s engaged or disengaged from the magnetic stand, helping conserve battery life.

With so many 10-inch tablets available in the market, finding a keyboard case that’s versatile enough to fit all the slight dimension changes is more important than ever. That’s why we developed the KeyFolio Fit for tablets running Android. A silicone four-corner base uses stay straps to securely keep the tablet in place. But the most exciting feature has to be TapLaunch available on the Android model, which lets you easily customize three shortcut keys so you can quickly start your favorite apps straight from your keyboard. And speaking of the keyboard, it’s integrated right into the case and pairs fast to your tablet through a Bluetooth® connection. With six rows of high-performance scissor keys, you can type with optimal productivity. A soft interior lining keeps your tablet protected from scratches and damage, and a magnetic flap keeps the case securely closed when you’re on the go.

  • BlackBelt 2nd Degree Rugged Case for iPad Air (Black – K97065WW), $59.99
  • BlackBelt  2nd Degree Rugged Case for iPad Air (Plum – K97078WW) or Red – K97079WW), $49.99

Accidents happen, and someday your iPad Air is probably going to get dropped. That’s why Kensington made the BlackBelt 2nd Degree Rugged Case. By surrounding your iPad Air in a strong, cushioned rubber layer, it can survive drops and bumps because it offers premium shock absorption. It also features a built-in hand strap, multi-position stand and a screen protector.

  • SafeGrip Rugged Carrying Case and Stand for iPad Air (Blueberry – K67809WW or Charcoal – K67808WW), $44.99

The iPad opens a whole new world of hands-on learning for kids. However, sensitive electronics like the iPad Air just weren’t made to withstand the punishment kids can dish out. The Kensington SafeGrip Rugged Carry Case & Stand wraps the iPad Air in a tough, padded case complete with screen protection. It also has a thick, sturdy handle that’s perfect for kids’ hands, plus a built-in stylus holder and personalization window.

The GummyGrip has a firm tip that’s highly durable, so it won’t wear out even after extended use. Because kids tend to put things in their mouths that they shouldn’t, Kensington designed the GummyGrip with only non-toxic materials in an ergonomic shape that’s ideal for small hands. A lanyard loop allows the stylus to be worn like a necklace, minimizing the chances for the stylus to get misplaced. It also fits perfectly into the stylus holder of the Kensington SafeGrip Rugged Case.

DPA Microphones Presents Grand Piano Listening Demo at AES 2014

Company to incorporate variety of d:dicate™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ Microphones into piano for attendee headphone listening stations

LOS ANGELES, OCTOBER 9, 2014 DPA Microphones will host a Grand Piano Listening Demo throughout the 137th AES Convention (Booth 1109). As part of these demonstrations, the company’s d:dicate™ 2011C and 4011A Recording, d:vote™ 4099P Instrument and d:screet™ 4061 Miniature mics will be connected to a Steinway Grand Piano. Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to the quality and differences of each microphone at headphone listening stations.

DPA Microphones_Grand Piano Listening Station_Pic1Employed in top recording studios and live applications around the world, DPA’s d:dicate™ 4011A Cardioid Condenser Microphone is perfect for both close-ups on individual instruments and vocals as well as for spot-miking symphonies. Its state-of-the-art components have been carefully selected to provide optimal neutrality, accuracy and extremely low distortion. The mic can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to attenuate the output of the microphone. A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound.

Also part of the demonstration is the d:dicate 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone, which is primarily optimized for use on stage. Its off-axis response is linear, much like the 4011, but features a smaller frequency bandwidth that increases stage separation and gain-to-feedback, making the mic level easier to control. Utilizing the company’s MMP-C preamplifier, the 2011C offers low distortion with a completely accurate sound. It is possible to transform the basic 2011 mic into a new configuration at any time by combining it with another DPA capsule or preamp. This includes the company’s MMP-A Class A preamplifier, which features a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end.

DPA Microphones_Grand Piano Listening Station_Pic2The company is also presenting the d:vote™ 4099P, a Stereo Piano Microphone System version of its supercardioid d:vote 4099 Instrument Mic Series. The complete system includes a pair of sensitivity-selected mics on goosenecks with magnetic mounts to allow the most accurate capture of a piano. With clean and transparent stereo sound quality and realistic dynamics, the d:vote 4099P is a piano miking solution that makes it easy to achieve a high level of isolation. With its low profile and unobtrusive design, the d:vote is perfect in closed lid scenarios for capturing true acoustic piano sound in a live setting. Its versatile magnet mount and gooseneck system provides stable and repeatable positioning at different angles to provide a variety of sound nuances.

Finally, the d:screet™ 4061 Omnidirectional Microphone with new robust cable strain relief will highlight the company’s miniature mic options. A versatile workhorse that adapts to numerous miking scenarios, the d:screet 4061 is the obvious choice for any application requiring a big sound and a small footprint. Originally designed for use in theater, television and close-miked instrument applications, the d:screet™ 4061 is highly unobtrusive and features eminent sound quality, with a large range of accessories and adapters available for all pro wireless systems. These tiny condensers exhibit an exceedingly accurate omnidirectional pattern and therefore do not need to be aimed directly at the sound source to achieve quality pickup. Incorporated on all d:screet Miniature Microphones, the robust strain relief ensures that users who are not used to handling miniatures can feel reassured by the increased reliability and durability, making them ideally suited to the rigors of various productions.

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high-quality condenser microphone solutions for professional applications. DPA’s ultimate goal is to always provide its customers with the absolute finest possible microphone solutions for all its markets, which include live sound, installation, recording, theatre and broadcast. When it comes to the design process, DPA takes no shortcuts. Nor does the company compromise on its manufacturing process, which is done at the DPA factory in Denmark. As a result, DPA’s products are globally praised for their exceptional clarity and transparency, unparalleled specifications, supreme reliability and, above all, pure, uncolored and undistorted sound.

Comprehensive Cable and Connectivity Celebrates 40 Year Anniversary

 

Comprehensive-Default-Logo--RGB-300dpi-JPG

 

This September marks the 40th year anniversary for Comprehensive Cable and Connectivity Company.

In 1974, the professional audio visual market was just emerging and the new small businesses across the country known then as “audio visual dealers” had a problem:  Whom do they go to get the connectivity, accessories and supplies they need for the equipment they are selling to local media, schools and businesses? Lucky for the AV industry, Comprehensive had the solution.

Originally known as Comprehensive Video Supply, Comprehensive began as a single source of accessories and supplies for the then up-and-coming “professional audio-visual” market. Sold exclusively through resellers, Comprehensive products, which included their now world-famous cables and connectivity products, were a must-have for every audio-visual and computer reseller. The same was true for the Comprehensive 200-page product catalog. Dealers could use the Comprehensive catalog as an invaluable resource, and have it custom imprinted with their business name and contact information for distribution to customers. (Keep in mind – popular use of the internet was still more than 20 years away, and it would be another 33 years before the first iPhone was introduced. Even the VCR had yet to be released).

Scott Schaefer, Comprehensive’s current President, commented, “Comprehensive was there at the beginning of both AV and IT. It is Comprehensive’s experience, commitment to reliability, value and service that has kept B2B customers around the world coming back year after year. We are so grateful for the decades of support that our industries, resellers, customers and employees – past and present – have shown Comprehensive. Without them, we would not be here today, and we never forget that. We thank each and every one.”

Over the years, Comprehensive built the business with a strong reputation for “putting its money where its mouth is” service by stepping up and standing behind its resellers and products from the very beginning. One of many enduring legacies that Comprehensive has given the industry is the ‘Lifetime Warranty’ on cable assemblies, connectors and adapters. While a marketing commodity in today’s internet age, Comprehensive takes those words very seriously.

“Comprehensive customers need reliability and service above all else. Customers come to Comprehensive because they know they can count on us; every product, every order, every time. ” said General Sales Manager, Martin Fensterstock.

Today, Comprehensive has grown into one of the leading connectivity brands in the U.S. and around the world and their reliability and service have become legendary in the industry. Over the decades, Comprehensive has truly become the “go to” company for B2B audio-visual and I.T. professionals in every industry.

In fact, looking at a partial client list of Comprehensive customers reads like a “who’s who” of technology, business, media, entertainment and government. Clients include: Sony, Panasonic, Disney, Microsoft, Apple, Crestron, NASA, U.S. Army, Columbia University, NBC, ABC, CNN   just to name a few. A list of resellers and distributors reads much the same – Ingram Micro, Anixter, AVI-SPL, The Whitlock Group, HB Communications, B&H Photo, New Egg.com, and the list goes on.

Originally located in Northvale NJ, Comprehensive was purchased by VCOM International Media Corporation in 1995 and has continued to expand even during the recent recession. With continuous, growing demand for their cable and connectivity products and services, Comprehensive recently moved into new, larger headquarters in Fairfield NJ. They are also hiring with many positions available.

Listening to customer needs, something Comprehensive has done since the very beginning, has led to many new and innovative products. The most recent being the extremely successful Pro AV/IT Series HDMI Cable family, which are the onlyHDMI cables specifically designed for systems integrators, corporate, government, medical and other demanding B2B environments. Exclusive features such as ProGrip® Connector Technology, SureLength® Indicators with cable lengths easily visible on all connector heads, as well as color Identification and 4K X 2K support are just a few innovations that customers can expect from Comprehensive products.

 In its first 40 years, Comprehensive became synonymous for reliable and innovative connectivity products that the audio-visual and I.T. professional could count on and that at least, is not something Mr. Schaefer thinks will change much over the next 40 years. “We are so excited about where Comprehensive and the market are going – 4K, HDBaseT, collaboration and the cloud, mobile, the opportunities are endless. Technology continues to evolve and advance and so does Comprehensive. We are doubling down on everything our customers have demanded from us in the past and building on it for tomorrow and beyond. The best is yet to come and like all things Comprehensive, you can count on that.”
